Boost your self-confidence with a safe yet straightforward approach—Botox. This injectable treatment, which needs little to no downtime, is the most effective and painless method to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles for 3-4 months. It works by inhibiting muscles, such as those in the forehead, from moving, thus, preventing the skin from developing wrinkles and creases.

How Does Botox Injections by Allergan Work?
Botox Injection by Allergan works by targeting one of the underlying causes of fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles—caused by repetitive muscle contractions such as frowning, smiling, squinting, and lifting the eyebrows over time. The treatment begins by injecting Botox into these muscles to reduce muscular activity temporarily. As the treatment progresses, you will see a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, the crow’s feet, and the forehead lines.
Is Botox Injection Only for Women?
In no way, shape, or form. The number of males opting for cosmetic procedures such as Botox has increased dramatically in recent years —with over a million botulinum toxin treatments administered to men in the last three years alone. A poll found that most men desire to look attractive, and 80% would prioritize crow’s feet, 74% prefer forehead lines, and 60% voted for frown lines.
How Many Injections Should You Expect?
Botox Injections by Allergan are tailored to every individual’s specific objectives and requirements. After a consultation, an RN or PA will evaluate the best course of action for any areas you desire to address, such as moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Generally, there are three injections for crow’s feet, five for the forehead region to treat frown lines, and five to reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles.
What Is The Right Age for Botox Injection?
What decides whether Botox Injection is appropriate for you is not your age but the severity of your wrinkles and creases. At Skin Loft, most of our patients seeking cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments are in their early thirties. Various variables, including cellular changes over time, collagen depletion, hereditary factors, and damage produced by free radicals from the sun and the environment, might impact the timing. When your lines begin to annoy you, make an appointment with us right away to determine whether or not Botox is appropriate for you.
